The movie is directed by John Hay and stars Hugh Bonneville, who is well known for his role in Downton Abbey, and newcomer actress, Eve Prenelle, who portrays the role of Olivia. The movie is set in the late 1960s and opens with the family living in a beautiful countryside home. John, played by Hugh Bonneville, is a famous author who has just landed a new deal with the publisher. Despite his success, John is struggling with writer's block and needs a quiet place to finish his book.

However, the idyllic life of the family takes a tragic turn when six-year-old Olivia suddenly falls ill with measles encephalitis. Despite the best efforts of the doctors, Olivia tragically passes away, leaving the family in a state of shock and devastation.
